I’ve found it helpful explaining to my child feelings are usual and normal and seeing his realization that feelings are OK to have. As a parent it has helped me be more patient and understand that feelings are real and valid even if I cannot understand why he feels this way. I enjoyed the group, a friendly calm atmosphere
